who the FUCK is out there trying to make you believe the best 4 years of your life are in college??? Same punks trying to pretend those “best years” were in high school. That’s complete fucking nonsense. You don’t get your best years until your late 40s. At least 6 of em are saved for after retirement. Fuck offf
thank you, people keep telling me I’m supposed to be having the best time of my life right now in college and it’s making me terrified for what the rest of my life will be like if this wreck is my high point
what the actual fuck, babe your 20s are for therapy & recovering from trauma.
im not kidding ok, your 20s are Adolescence 2.0. in essence. Young adulthood is about re-playing the mario level until you finally get around all those stupid fucking levitating bricks. it’s about working through old shit until you’re free to move on to a new level. your college and post-college years are not the best time of your life, they are you putting in the hours battling pokemon in the grass so you can move on to the gym leaders.
Traveling far was impossible this year. I was looking forward to going to Portugal and a friend who I haven’t seen in a year was about to visit from the US when the lockdowns happened.
One thing I do appreciate from it is that everything became kind of slower, like no one expects you to do much and going to classes now means getting to my desk and opening my laptop.
oh it totally does, but you can’t hear it because space is a vacuum and sound can’t travel through a vacuum!
and that’s a good thing,
because the roar of the sun would clock in at around 120db heard from earth, about the equivalent to having a train’s horn go off three feet from your face.
constantly. all the time, even at NIGHT. there would be no escape.
this is simply terrifying. how do you erase knowledge please ?
NASA actually recorded the sun, if you want to hear it:
And they recorded the planets too:
so, the sun and the earth sound about how i would’ve expected, and a lot of other planets just make strong wind sounds which is perfectly reasonable but venus sounds like pure dread?!?! WHY IS SATURN SCREAMING?!? pluto isn’t bad and is actually kinda nice but it’s very strange to me too like Why Does It Do That. jupiter is super chill 10/10. pluto and jupiter need to collab i would buy that album
oh, fuck, guys, you know what this means? it means the ancient world was right about the music of the spheres.
i can hear these photos and i don’t like it
she asked me if i believed in god and i told her that when i was four i almost drowned in a public pool and in my panic mistook a stranger for my father. i clawed my way up his leg. four years later he’d send my parents a picture of the scars alongside a tin of cookies. he said, “i hope she’s still okay. i carry her with me. it isn’t every day you save a life. it isn’t every day you feel like you were here for a reason. when it does happen, you have to cherish that memory. for once, i had a purpose. just being there was enough. she tore me open but she taught me a lot about love.”
